Michelle K. Morrison, Ed.D.
Dr. Michelle Morrison joined The Speech and Hearing Centers in July, 2000. As Director of Speech Pathology for eight years, her driving force was patient-centric innovation - her program and process improvements reenergized our patients. After a one-year stop as the Director of Operations, today, Michelle is the Executive Director of Sertoma Speech and Hearing Centers (SSHC), responsibilities for which she is well prepared.
When Michelle joined SSHC, she added a wealth of know-how to our operations. Trained as a speech-language pathologist at Western Illinois University, Michelle practiced in a wide range of private and public settings helping children and adults achieve their communication goals. After a brief stop as a case manager for a State agency, Michelle joined TSHC.
Highlights of her clinical work include early-childhood intervention, special-education speech pathology, design and development of high school independent-living programs, and communications-skills development with autistic kids, an experience that was particularly satisfying.
Michelle earned the Doctor of Education-Organizational Leadership degree in 2014. She is particularly pleased to have shared that experience with her god-daughter and to demonstrate that learning is a life-long endeavor. Olivia keeps Dr. Morrison busy during non-work hours and reminds her of the importance of play. Michelle has worked with Thoroughbred horses for many years, and as a volunteer, contributes to therapeutic-riding programs.
Sports and music run deep too. Michelle played and coached fast-pitch softball and coached boys basketball and volleyball. She also plays several instruments. Currently though, improving her game of golf or billiards and finding room for her ever expanding music collection...well, until the little one says it's time to play.
